Esport bomb timer

Recommended Posts

This is more of a design choice and something which builds suspense for when retakes are happening.

Remove the bomb timer and use a beeping noise like csgo

the reason is it helps build suspense and having those nail biting  super close defuses, puts everyone at the edge of their seat. 

A tournament in Csgo showed the bomb timer and the rounds were much less engaging and suspenseful then without the bomb timer. 

Could just be a viewer only addition but I think it should be replaced as a whole

Spoilers for the E-league major so don't watch the clip if you plan on watching it and have been avoiding news on it.

 

This is a perfect example of the suspense of both the crowd, casters, and even the players from the bomb timer not being shown and having that super close defuse.

There is a bar on the top of the screen though (for viewers). From a player perspective I'd hate seeing the timer removed.

Should fit with the aesthetic of the game and be a ticking clock sound such as this: 

I think that would be amazing tbh.

Call of Duty 1 did NOT have a timer, the amount of nailbiting defuses I got off (or blew up in my face) is something I won't ever forget ;)

It’s just something you’ll have to learn to rely on the sound. Would also add something to the cardsystem as you need to take a risk.

It's not an idea

When mods arrive, us in the Tactical Realism community usually will have this in the mod.

1. No sound when planting

2. No sound when defusing

3. No clock unless you attempt or are defusing the bomb, then is shows

4. No countdown

You could hear them plant or defuse if you were 20 foot or less from the bomb.

The only way you could usually tell when someone was planting without seeing them was the A or B bomb sites icon changed.

Usually 1 minute total bomb time and 10 seconds to plant and defuse

The suspense can sometimes be well, you all know.

I totally agree with that.
